Indocement gears up to meet rising demand, Indonesia
Published: 16 August 2012


PT Indocement Tunggal Prakarsa has said it will continue to raise capacity to meet increasing domestic demand with three new factories planned to come on-stream by 2016.

The new facilities are to be built in Citereup (West Java), Pati (Central Java) and another outside Java. Construction of the Citereup factory, which will have a capacity of 4.4Mta, will start construction before the end of this year and be completed in 2015.

An environmental impact assessment is still being carried out for the Pati factory as protests from locals have delayed construction to-date. "We need socialization of the project to the local people but we hope we could start implementation of the project as soon as possible," he said. The factory is expected to have a capacity of 2.5Mta.
 
No details were provided about the third factory. (Source: LKBN Antara)
